Bollywood has already given some of the biggest box-office successes with films entering the Rs. 100-crore club within the first week of the release. From Padmaavat to the most recent hit Sanju, Bollywood films are giving profitable business to all the shareholders including the actors, producers, and distributors.
However, there is one of the biggest commercial hits of Bollywood that might have incurred losses to the distributors and producers. Apparently, Race 3 crossed Rs. 300 crore mark worldwide through which superstar Salman Khan made a huge amount of profit.
It was buzzing news that Race 3 earned huge profits of Rs 150 crores even before the release of the film. After the release, it surpassed all the box-office hits of 2018. Interestingly, Box-office collections of any film are divided between producers, distributors, and exhibitors.
But, in the case of Race 3 the lead actor Salman Khan earned a profit that is way more than what producers and distributors earned collectively. From the profits, the producers of the film Race 3 Ramesh Taurani reportedly, got only Rs 20 crores, while actor Salman Khan gained a lot more than expected.
Moreover, while the distributors bought the rights of Race 3 from Producer Ramesh Taurani and Salman Khan for a whopping Rs 125 crore, they were able to make Rs. 75 to 80 crores only after selling the movie to the theaters. Well evidently, it seems the distributors had to face a loss of approximately Rs 50 crores when Salman Khan grossed huge profits without investing much in the film.
The budget of the multi-starrer Race 3 was Rs 150 crore and guess it became one of the biggest hits of 2018 even after a lot of trolling. Apart from Salman Khan, the film featured Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol and Daisy Shah in the lead.
Who’s having the bigger laugh now?
